In 1952, a dermatologist in New York City, Dr. Norman Orantreich,made the breakthrough invention of hair transplant. Since then Dermatologists have refined and progressed the art and science of hair transplant more than any other single specialty. Dermatologists are the specialists of the skin, hair and nail diseases; they diagnose and treat Hair loss better than any other specialist. Never, ever, decide on your own that you are a candidate for hair transplant. First of all a dermatologist must confirm the cause of your Hair loss. Other than genetic predisposition, Hair loss could, as well, be a consequence of any superficial infection or even an internal disease process. In certain cases, hair can be made to re grow by eliminating the disease causing it.
Our dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Azim Khan has written chapters on Hair loss and Hair loss treatment in the textbooks taught in medical colleges and universities internationally. During your initial consultation for hair transplant in Lahore, you will be thoroughly evaluated for the cause of Hair loss in your particular case.
Hair transplant is a very fine artistic surgery to treat Hair loss that can not be treated with any other Hair loss treatment like medicines or medicinal lotions. In hair transplant surgery, hair is taken out from the back of patients head (from the scalp) and planted on the front balding part of the head or on any other body part where hair is needed. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness, whereby grafting hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transferred to the already bald scalp. However, it is also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard hair. They are ones own natural hair and grow for the rest of ones life as their other normal hair. The transplanted hair require cutting just like ones other normal hair.
Hair transplant in Lahore, Pakistan
Hair transplant in Pakistan has now become the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for men.There are many options available to get an affordable hair transplant in Pakistan. Horrifically, from a totally unqualified wig-specialist or a barely qualified doctor, to a properly trained and internationally acclaimed skilled cosmetic surgeon who actually specializes in hair transplant – there are many options to choose from. In Pakistan Hair transplant surgery is not strictly regulated by the health ministry, and can be confidently performed by anyone really--- qualified or not. You as a patient are advised to thoroughly consider and confirm the credentials of your Hair loss treatment specialist especially when choosing a hair transplant surgeon in Pakistan. Unfortunately, many hair transplant centers in Pakistan also cheat their patients by making false claims of planting more hair, using a particular technique and, much to our surprise, employ funny and ridiculous ways of charging them for every single hair separately. This is done only to camouflage the cost of the hair transplant.

In our US clinics and in Pakistan hair transplant is performed using our state-of-the-art technology and latest techniques of micro hair transplantation with single and follicular unit hair transplant, follicular unit extraction (FUE), or a combination of these techniques as required by the patient.

What happens after the surgery?
There is no pain or very little discomfort after the surgery and you can resume your daily activities after the surgery. Patient goes home immediately after the surgery that normally takes 5 - 7 hours to perform if done appropriately with care. Some of the transplanted hairs fall within the first three weeks and then they start to grow in three months and continue to grow for the rest of life.
Why do the transplanted hairs not fall?
Even the baldest men do not become bald on the sides and back of the head. This is because the hair on the sides and the back of the head are genetically programmed "not to fall" when a male hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) attacks on them. This is a normal hormone present in humans. Only the front/top hair in those who have a family history of baldness in the father or the mother side of the family, get the baldness, as in these individuals, the frontal hair will die in response to DHT hormone, sometime after puberty. Baldness can start at any age after puberty and for most men with a family history of baldness it can start as early as early 20's and in very severe cases these individuals can become totally bald in their 30's. Even in these individuals the back and sides of the scalp/ head will remain unaffected. So we take these resistant healthy hairs and transplant them on the front of the balding head. They keep on growing here for the rest of the life, as they would normally have done at their original place, i.e., back of the head.
Can these hairs be transplanted on any other part of the body where the hair is lost (e.g., in a scar after injury)?
Yes. These healthy hairs can be placed anywhere they are needed like in the beard and mustache area and so on.
Can the females get the hair transplant?
Absolutely yes. Those females who suffer from female pattern baldness i.e., a type of baldness that is caused by a hormone called as DHT. This is almost like male pattern baldness except that in females the frontal line is maintained (meaning the front rows of hair remain unaffected).Therefore, a female with this kind of baldness, decreased hair density or simply a scar can benefit from a hair transplant. Again, the root cause of Hair loss or reduction must be considered and corrected prior to hair transplantation. It simply means that a good dermatologist needs to look at your hair to rule out any hair diseases that may simply be cured with medicines without any surgical intervention.
